Default Re: disruption pods ?

Personally I really want to try them out with a Railhead.

Using it's long range to the maximum, Eldar would be a heck of a time firing back at you (with most of their AT weapons have a range of 36" or less).

It's less useful against Imperials, but if you're on a large board then it's quite easy to stay 42"+ inchs away, and with most of their firepower being move-or-fire they can't fire back!

It's not a wonder weapon, but it's cheap and has its uses. Time will tell if I can use it effectively in my army (when that's ready).

I always use disruption pods on my tanks. Often enough I'll find that stray lascannon shot or krak missile can't quite reach.

Actually, against Eldar, it's probably the most useful compared to the other armies out there. The reason is the same as Andromidius stated, the range of their weapons which would be effecting your tanks the most. The range of the "Lance" weaponry is the perfect range for use of a Disruption pod, because you will lower it's distance. Unlike against a weapon with more range, you simply rarely will see it work for you. Your hammerhead can hover 36 inches away from those lances and not take the hits, which gives you a safety range that is pretty much the same as your fire warriors maximum range almost! Not bad eh? Just remember to pull back and keep your distance, because once he realises he cannot hit you, he may just rush your tank with something and still hit it. It's best if he moves towards you and still cannot hit you! So keep a healthy distance if possible

Try it out, see how it works for you

Cheers!
